The Chinese Guzheng …

is the father of the Japanese koto. Without a bridge and smaller it is a guqin.

Heres a fabulous clip with excellent notes:

I also found an excellent clip of Tang poetry, a poem in the middle is very familiar to me. Visuallystunning.

    The qin and se belong in the same family, but are not derived from one another. Also, if you write “guquin” (or pronounce it goo-kwinn), I can promise you the hundred-some members over at the Facebook International Guqin Society will be sharpening their knives…
